Elise Stefanik Deals Blow To Liz Cheney: “I’m proud to endorse Harriet Hageman in her race to unseat Liz Cheney”

House Republican Conference chair Elise Stefanik gave Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney some bad news and officially endorsed her primary opponent, Harriet Hageman, today. 

Stefanik said: “I’m proud to endorse Harriet Hageman in her race to unseat Liz Cheney. House Republicans were ready for a change when I took over as Conference Chair, and it’s resoundingly clear that Wyoming families are too. Harriet is a true America First patriot who will restore the people of Wyoming’s voice that has been long forgotten by Liz Cheney.

“Liz Cheney abandoned her constituents to become a Far-Left Pelosi puppet. Liz sadly belongs in an MSNBC or CNN news chair, not in Congress representing Wyoming, a state that voted for President Trump by over forty points.”

Hageman said:

“I am honored and grateful to have the support of Rep. Elise Stefanik, who is an excellent representative for her own constituents and a fantastic chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.

 “She is proof that it is possible to fight for your principles in Washington, D.C. while also staying true to what your constituents want you to do.

“It is fitting that I am receiving the endorsement of the congresswoman who replaced Liz Cheney as chair of the Republican Conference because it exemplifies exactly how Cheney has abandoned her responsibilities.

“In Wyoming, we only get one member of the House of Representatives, and so we have to get it right. Cheney has turned her back on us, and used the Congressional seat we entrusted her with to further her own personal goals.

“At the same time, she has aided Speaker Nancy Pelosi in damaging the Republican Party as a willing pawn of the Democrats.

“When I am the Congresswoman from Wyoming, I will always remember who sent me to Congress, and I will always fight for what is best for our wonderful state,” she said.

Cheney remained defiant, “Wow, she must be really desperate,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler said.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., endorsed Hageman yesterday. He said:

“I am proud to endorse Harriet Hageman for Congress.

“Raised on a family ranch outside of Fort Laramie, Harriet and her family have resided in Wyoming for generations.

“The most successful Representatives in Congress focus on the needs of their constituents, and throughout her career, Harriet has championed America’s natural resources and helped the people of Wyoming reject burdensome and onerous government overreach.”
